Logic unleashes a torrent of pop culture references – Dave Chappelle to Michael Jackson to Master P – on the dizzying new single “Everybody Dies.” 

“Had a lot of dark nights, but, bitch, I been Bane/ I was born in the darkness like Rick James/ Bitch, sippin’ scotch with Chappelle after the Grammys/ Said them countries wasn’t ‘shit holes’; they prolly wanna ban me,” he rhymes over a jazzy guitar figure and booming beat, veering from a Batman nod to a President Trump diss.

Elsewhere, he raps, “Now my shit a masterpiece, no limit like Master P,” “Get the pussy wet like Jodeci” and “Don’t be scared to walk like Michael on the moon.”

“Everybody Dies” is the latest in a streak of new Logic songs, including the Nina Simone-sampling “The Return” (on which he invited Jay-Z to collaborate), “One Day” (featuring Ryan Tedder) and Marshmello collaboration “Everyday.” His upcoming Young Sinatra 4 album, which follows the Bobby Tarantino II mixtape, is due out September 28th.

Logic recently performed “One Day” with Tedder at the MTV Video Music Awards, using the national TV platform to condemn President Trump’s immigration policies. The duo recruited families displaced by immigration laws – all wearing T-shirts that read “We Are All Human Beings” – to accompany them onstage.
